The Nevada State Library believes that involving volunteers in its operation will assist in carrying out its vision. Volunteers serve as an important link between the library and the community. They help the community to understand how the library works, as well as its importance as a community cultural, educational and recreational resource. And, by bringing in the consumer viewpoint, volunteers expand the library’s personnel’s understanding of community needs and interests.
Library service is enhanced by volunteers supplementing and assisting the library staff. Volunteers bring ability, talents, and time, allowing staff to provide enhanced services and embark upon special projects. Volunteers are welcome to help in all facets of the library operations except in functions that would jeopardize patron confidentiality and their right to privacy.
